At the workshop, students will enjoy plenty of discussion, practical demonstrations, hands on work and individual instruction. Students are encouraged to bring their own design and use a variety of fusions from the selection Martin brings. The workshop focus is the mosaic process and as each student’s pace is unique – some may not finish. To mitigate the possibility that a student may not complete his project  special fusion kits (new this season) to build specific designs will be available. When you register, you can select a specific kit.

About Martin Cheek:

Martin Cheek has been creating mosaics professionally for 30 years and has shared his expertise in six best-selling books on this subject.  With a degree in graphic design from Exeter College of Art & Design in the United Kingdom, Martin went on to work in the film industry as an animator where he set up his own production company, Cheeky Films Ltd.  He has worked on award winning films and puppet animation projects including The Wind in the Willows, Paddington Bear, Noddy in Toyland, and Portland Bill.

As a full time professional mosaic artist, Martin spends his time working on commissioned projects for both private and corporate clients that include museums, schools, parks, and hospitals.  Martin teaches workshops throughout the U.S., U.K., New Zealand, Australia, and Europe.

Martin’s latest book, Fused Glass Mosaics, is a good illustration of  the exciting medium of using fused glass mosaics. The text is a rich bestowment of Martin’s detail to order, his passion and humor, and his you-can-do-it encouragement. This book serves as an art course in mosaics, whereby each chapter offers a different stylistic challenge. In fulfilling these projects, the reader will develop their own individual style.

Studio Space for Classes, Workshops and Working On Your Own

 

Shortly after moving in, Diane and Asia threw a ‘Grand Opening celebration” the highlight was a student art show. The many students that enjoy working in the studio over the last three years brought and displayed their artwork . There was plenty of art (purely for art’s sake) but the functional mosaic art…coasters, trays, lazy susans, house numbers…wow! The variety of mosaic art that has been created in the studio over the last 4 years is amazing!

 

Functional Mosaic Artwork

Diane has enhanced her mosaic self-education at the Union Square Art Cooperative in NYC and at the Institute of Mosaic Art, Berkeley CA. She has attended workshops with Martin Cheek, Mireille Swinnen, Michelle Petno and Jeff Halverson (some of the best known local and international mosaic artists). Diane’s portfolio is as varied as the application of mosaic art can be.  She is experienced in stained glass, smelt and picassiette. Diane has applied her art to garden items, upcycled art (mosaicking found items to give them new life), commissions for clients (address plaques, store signs), and has often explored her mosaic artistic voice.

Special classes by mosaic artists and artists of other disciplines are being scheduled for 2017. Francesca will be presenting an ‘Opus and Andamento Workshop’. Opus and andamento are time honored techniques used in traditional mosaics. Francesca will review traditional applications and introduce a modern approach, discuss tessellation, patterns, negative/positive space and the student will put this instruction into practice on their own project under Francesca’s guidance. This is an excellent opportunity for advanced beginners or intermediate mosaic artists to delve into some of the more advanced techniques of the art.
The studio will be participating in the St. Lucie County Rock and Gem Club Show at the Martin County Fairgrounds on October 22-23. They are particularly excited to be featured as the “Artist in Residence” at the Ground Floor Farm of Stuart, where their art will be featured for the months of December and January.
